Clean those reusable shopping bags More and more of us are trying to live greener.
We buy organic, we recycle. We even are being encouraged to use our own bags when we shop. It all an effort to avoid waste and save the planet. But now, one of those planet saving efforts apparently comes with its own set of problems. Those reusable bags, if not handled correctly, might actually cause consumers harm. On Tuesday the Canadian health department issued an environmental advisory to make sure consumers use the bags correctly. It recommends cleaning the bags and doing it often. The Canadian health department found that bacteria and other things were living and growing in those consumer friendly bags things we really don want around our food, or our family. A study done in 2009 by Dr. Richard Summerbell, research director at Toronto based Sporometrics, uncovered that many bags have bacteria, mold, yeast and even some more disgusting stuff in them. And those unwelcome bag bugs can cause some louis vuitton purses from china very unpleasant things. The first risk is food poisoning, but other issues include skin infections like boils, allergic reactions, asthma attacks and even ear infections. But before you ditch the reusable and go back to land fill loving plastic bags there is one thing you need to know: The study was funded by the Environment and Plastics Industry Council or EPIC. So basically the plastic people paid for it. This shouldn invalidate the guidelines, but also shouldn overly scare you about using those reusable bags either. Just like you wash sheets and towels, wash your re usable bags. And wash them often, either in warm water or with a mild bleach and water mixture. Also make sure you wash the counter tops where you put those same bags because if it lives on the bags it can live on your counters. When you shop, if possible, separate your goods by putting fruit in one bag for instance and meats in another. Things that leak, like packaged meats probably need another wrapping to be on the safe side. But keep in mind even those precautions might not do the trick as bacteria can be transferred by the store bagging clerk from one reusable bag to another. This is certainly a ploy by the plastics industry. You could run the same tests on your couch, chair, matress, louis vuitton bags collection kitchen sink or any number of other things you interact with on a more frequent basis and probably get worse results. Periodically washing the bags is probably a good idea, just like washing your sheets, clothes or yourself is a good idea, but that environmentally friendly reusable bags are dangerous is silly. One should note that if buying reuseable bag, buy ones that do not have the large painted on logos/lettering louis vuitton purses eluxury as they contain significant amounts of lead. Google free reuseable bags for places to find them. June 15, 2011 at 11:54 A ploy by the plastics industry for sure. But PLEASE people, get a handle on You are around germs ALL THE TIME. Of COURSE there are germs on a grocery bag. There are germs on EVERYTHING. But most germs are louis vuitton bags prices amazon good for you, assuming you are reasonably healthy. What is UNSAFE are the antimicrobial chemicals built into EVERYTHING these days (try to find a soap that doesn have them, I dare you). Make the bags mandatory and BAN the antimicrobial products. We will ALL be safer. June 15, 2011 at 17:22 Report abuse You day you don eat off your couch. Wrong. If you sit on the couch the will make it to your mouth and nose. If washing the bags were that important just think of all the people that would be dead by now. Eating a strawberry you dropped in the gutter is no more dangerous than eating the strawberry you purchased at the grocery store or the farmer market. The dangers to be worried about are the bug sprays, chemicals (including those used for sanitation), additives and processing methods not the germs that share the world with us every day. Don eat anything that has been sprayed, enhanced, processed or precooked if you can avoid it. All that kind of stuff is to increase the bottom line and allow food processors to use ingredients they could not possibly sell in their natural form.

i guess you dont eat fruits and vegetables enough to know that though. or like the other guy said you aren aware that you are supposed to wash your food before you eat it. i sure the germs on my hands that are washed all the time is not as bad as something that can come from the enviroment naturally like a bird turd.
